Cousin Love

Salamanca

Last weekend we had Poppy and James’ cousin – Maggie, stay with us for two days.  Nick was also away and so our little tribe had an action packed weekend.

On Saturday morning we braved the crowds and went to the Myer Christmas Pageant in Hobart – a tradition for the past four years!  Both Maggie and Poppy were captivated and waved to every float for over an hour!

We had a play date with school friends in the afternoon and then the girls were allowed to stay up late (8:30 pm) and watch a Barbie Ballerina movie!  They were in heaven.

The next morning we met our friends, Fiona and Poppy at Smolt for breakfast where Fiona has devised the best breakfast for kids at a restaurant … Bacon and Ice cream!  It went down a treat and kept them amused long enough for us to have a decent adult conversation.

We went to the park and beach to expend the energy from breaky and then garden play at home for the rest of the day.

With only a few tense moments between them, we all had a great time and Maggie didn’t want to go home.  This was Poppy’s first ‘sleep-over’ experience and I am sure there will be many more in the coming years!  x

Jimmy Giggle + Santa

Poppy an I went along to her first Christmas Pageant on Saturday!  At first she was quite overwhelmed with the amount of people, loud band noises and crazy floats. She finally warmed up and ended up waving her flag madly.

We were quite excited to see Jimmy Giggle from Giggle and Hoot and of course, the main man of the moment … Santa!
